Porsche beats Tesla record

Last year, the Tesla Model S Plaid set an official record for electric cars on the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Porsche didn’t let that sit – and now undercut the time in a Taycan Turbo S with a special performance kit.

A best time in the “Green Hell” is now considered a special benchmark for the automotive industry. After all, the Nürburgring Nordschleife, opened in 1927 in the German Eiffel, is considered the most demanding race track in the world. On one lap, the drivers can expect 73 curves, 300 meters of difference in altitude and a number of demanding uphill, downhill and inclines. Accordingly, it is particularly prestigious for sports car companies to achieve best times here (click here for the article: 13 records on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife).

Porsche must have been all the more annoyed when US electric pioneer Tesla set a record for series electric vehicles in September 2021. The Model S Plaid with a tri motor and a gigantic 1020 hp sped around the 20.8 kilometer route in 7:35.579 minutes, undercutting the unofficial record of a Taycan prototype from 2019.
